The album was critically acclaimed and he began to gain widespread attention.[4] On June 21, 2019, he released the extended play The Plugs I Met, which includes guest appearances from Black Thought, Pusha T, 38 Spesh, Jadakiss, and Conway The Machine.[5][6][7] On August 6, it was announced that Benny signed a management deal with Roc Nation.[8] On March 3, 2017, Griselda (as a collective), as well as Westside Gunn and Conway the Machine, signed a deal with Eminem's Shady Records, a subsidiary of Interscope.

Right after the intro skit you hear him next to Black Thought. Next song Jadakiss, and closing out the project with Pusha T's second best guest appearance of 2019 on 18 Wheeler. No matter who was with him Benny blew like Sonny Rollins on the Sax, whether Conway or Eminem was coming on next…it didn't matter. The Butcher has a gift and no fear."[11]
